We'll send you one email every month full of helpful articles.
Do you remember the little paper things we folded up and put our fingers and thumbs in to then lift a flap and reveal a fortune? Guess what? Capstone has created some for us to use in our libraries and classrooms!
As we embark on summer for many of us, and a new school year upcoming, let’s take a minute to reflect on this year and envision what awesome new goals we can set for next year, and how we can discover fantastic resources and develop amazing learning experiences for our students. Let’s take a look at how PebbleGo can be our partner as we look ahead to an even better 2019-2020!
Meet Bryan Schmidt, Ed Tech Marketing Manager on the Capstone Team
PebbleGo, a K-3 research product used in 20% of U.S. elementary schools, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019. In 10 years the database developed nine curriculum-focused modules, including Animals, Biographies, Science, Social Studies, Dinosaurs, and four Spanish version modules, and cultivated a passionate user community.
Today, I want to share 5 exciting and engaging ways PebbleGo can be used as a pathway for learning and reading this summer with students, families and throughout your community too.
With a seemingly limitless number of topics to include in PebbleGo, how do we decide? There are several factors we take into account when creating our topic list, including curriculum standards, trends, and, of course, feedback from you!
Meet Amanda Moon, Digital Marketing Specialist on the Capstone Team
As librarians and teachers, we are always on the lookout for learning activities that engage and excite our students. We want them to connect to the content we are sharing and have them create their own meaning from these learning experiences in the most authentic ways. Well, there is something new in the world of education that does just that.
We celebrate National Poetry Month every year in April. This is a time to bring words to life through special experiences, projects, and celebrations with your students and school community. I love using art, writing, music, acting, and more to teach children about poetry and inspire them to be poets, too. I also love to think of ways to tie different subjects such as science, math, and history into Poetry Month and poetic opportunities throughout the year.
